I'm sorry if I'm posting this to the wrong board, but I don't know where else to pin it. About four years ago, I was looking for an HTML editor and I ran across the HTML Creator, created by Aram Kudurshian. When I tried to buy the program he wrote to me telling me he was no longer selling it and that I could go ahead and use it for free. He gave me a code to be able to unlock the program. I didn't write the code down. Now on my new computer although I transferred everything over to it, the program isn't being recognized and it is asking me for the code. Is there anyway, that I can be able to get the program to work on my current computer without needing a code that anyone knows of? I've written to Mr. Kudurshian, but so far I haven't heard from him. Thank you for any insight to my question.

You can edit HTML in TextEdit on your Mac, though granted it isn't as clean.

TextWrangler is a good one for Mac. Notepad++ if you are on Windows.
I think I looked at TextWrangler and I found it a little awkward, but I'll have a look at it again. Just wish I could get back into the editor created by AK. Thanx for the suggestion.

Yes, I've tried this before, but when I upload on to the ftp, it is shown as the html code. I doesn't show it as the webpage.

Actually, what I'm wanting is a drag and drop type of html editor. Something that's free and easy to use. I use to be really good at this long ago, but I've forgotten most of it. As it is, I have a website that just needs a little updating, but I can't find an easy html editor. I tried using iWeb, but it comes with pre-formatted templates. Thanx all!

To use TextEdit:

Create a new TextEdit file, and make it plain text (format -> make plain text). Open your HTML page in Safari, and then go to View -> View Source. Copy it all into the TextEdit plain text window, and save it as whatever.html (it has to be plain text for it to work).

I did, but when I drop the TextEdit page file into the Safari browser, it doesn't show up as the webpage. All it shows me is the source code. In other words no images, no background color, nothing but the source code.

Doublecheck that you are saving it with the .html extension.

Filename.html

To save it with the HTML extension you will have to convert it to plain text as Kilamite posted.

Ok, I got it. The extension at the end made all the difference in the world. I remember now. Funny how things are forgotten when they are worked with in a while. Thanx allison7v and everyone else!
